A theatre has always been a sacred space to me. The sacred act of standing in front of community and speaking your truth, speaking your story. That's what a wedding is. I understood that fully when Richie and I were married in a theatre nine months ago.

It was for me, an extension of Pride perhaps. Into Wholeness. All the parts of us – the personal, the professional, the familial, the communal, the sexual, our youth, our age, our past, our present, our future – all came together at that one moment in that one place to make something new. A new sense of self. A new pride.
